The upcoming Buick EV shown to media is similar in terms of overall shape as the upcoming all-electric Chevrolet CUV and all-electric Cadillac Lyriq, the latter of which was originally slated to debut in April. The Lyriq’s debut has since been postponed as a result of the ongoing novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
We also know that the new electric Buick crossover is described as having more “edges” than the electric Chevrolet CUV, and will be roughly equivalent to the Chevrolet Equinox in terms of sizing.
Similar to the other products shown during the event, the upcoming electric Buick will feature cutting-edge cabin tech, including a large instrument panel and information system on the dash spanning some 30 inches from end to end.
As we covered earlier this month, General Motors hopes to sell 1 million electric vehicles globally by 2025. As such, the automaker has a plethora of new products and parts on hand, including the new BEV3 all-electric platform which will likely underpin the new electric Buick crossover. During the event, GM also revealed its new Ultium battery technology, as well as the BT1 electric vehicle platform, the latter of which will provide the bones for the forthcoming all-electric GMC Hummer EV pickup and SUV.
With so many products in the pipeline, the move towards all-electric vehicles will essentially allow GM to “reset” in a number of vital areas. The upcoming electric Buick crossover will likely present a host of fresh technology for the brand, giving it a fresh face for consumers to ogle.
